Light can only be functional?
Can a product be positively emotional in order to ease our pressure?
How might we emphasize the emotion on a light?
How might we form a conversation among light, space and people?

Project: Fly a Kite
Designers: Mei-Ling Lu, Yu-Ting Cheng
“Fly a Kite” is a wall light. We strive to overturn the stereotype of wall lights and bring them into life and motion. With the design, we strike a conversation between our living space and the objects within. We regard the wall as a canvas, and our light as paints. Together, they accommodate and interact and create indoor poetic scenery by breathing the outdoor refreshment into the frame. With “Fly a Kite” wall light, we aim to recreate a lighthearted, cheerful but soothing atmosphere in our homes like flying a kite under the blue open sky.
As for the lighting, the woven lampshade creates a soft, fluffy and cozy glow. With the wool textured cover, even when the light isn’t turned on, it does not appear to be redundant on the wall, but an elegant ornament that shines on its own.
